36 of 56 have gotten it right. Reimburse Pearce for the $300 he's out and let him seek forgiveness from those who supported him but cannot cash in their investents seeking policital favors, this because he lost!
Now it's 44 of 67 who understand this issue. But it would appear that those Pearce supportes have put the pressure on Pearce's former buddies in the State Senate. They will vote to fund "imbursement" so that they can get their money back. Then some of that money will be "contributed" to Pearce's former buddies.
That's politics in the 21st century!
First define 'reasonable.' Lewis spent just shy of $90,000, while Pearce spent almost $260,000. I don't approve of handing out taxpayer dollars to fund any kind of election campaign, but if reasonable is the criteria, seems like Lewis' figure is far more reasonable, since he did, after all, win the election.
We need a referendum to remove, or clarify, that part of the Arizona Constitution. It's been untouched since 1973, and it's very unclear what it even means. I don't see the word 'reimburse' anywhere in that section. And again, it uses the word 'reasonable.'
And Haddie Nuff,
Does Pearce's $260,000 of other people's money count the money spend promoting a second challenger?
Pearce reasonably spent $300 on his campaign, a waste of money. Let $300 be the limit of reimbursement. Lewis probably will fund reimbursement. Heck, I'll throw in a dime or two.
And with 110 of 147 in agreement, I'd say that legislators were wise to burry this bill.
